in different cities. "i did a lot of the hauling of the protesters to washington, dc, during the 1960s. the freedom riders is what they were. and i'd have to stay with them and bring them back to here, and then another driver would take them back south, when they go. those were rough days for me. scary days, really, for the freedom riders and all. i never had any trouble with any of them. i treated them real nice, and talked to them, and stayed with them -- like i say, stayed with them in washington, dc, three or four days at a time. "this is my favorite spot here, the better buses. there's the old silver-side bus, and the old double- decker bus, and the others that were made. these were my best ones. i got some of them at yard sales,and some of them we -- we had in chicago, and
new york city, they had the gift shop that sold toy buses. "i bought this school bus in salem, virginia. it was on eighth street, underneath a canopy. and it had been kind of beat up and banged up a little bit, but we got it fixed and we got it running. the most important thing about this bus is the seats inside of it." (nat: snap as chain cut away - "ah, yes.") messimer: "it's a 1934 dodge brothers school bus. as old as i am, i have never seen one with seats like the inside of this bus. and i'm real proud of it now, because a lot of people love it, we get a lot of compliments on it. "this was my cap here, my driver's cap. i was a driver instructor at one time here, for the last seven years that i worked with greyhound. and i trained the first driver -- girl driver -- that drove in this area for
time. 1976 and '77. "a lot of the drivers said, 'why don't you sell this stuff and get you some money?' i said: why do you think i saved it for? for myself and the public, to show the public someday.
